A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you wish to get an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and account information which are exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Then, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting
If you host a website in a shared web hosting
account acquired from our company and its users send sensitive info, you'll be able to acquire an SSL certificate for it directly from your website hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, therefore you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the needed details for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If if you plan to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only obtain a CSR using your Control Panel then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
